To See Or Not To See?

I had a hair appointment this morning so I wore my contacts.(hairspray, etc)  I haven’t worn my contacts out and about for a long time. For the most part I was okay but it was different. I had no problems in the salon where he made my hair shorter than we discussed…why does everybody do this? I won’t know how I feel about it until I do my own hair…I will report back.

I ran to Sam’s Club next. I haven’t seen this many people in Sam’s in a long time. I only needed a few things so I wasn’t in there too long. When I first walked in I was confused…why were my transition lenses taking so long to turn back? I forgot I was wearing my contacts and was still wearing my sunglasses. That was a doh! moment.

I ran to Aldi’s next to see if they had any organic celery which they did. The kid at the checkout said they just got it back in this morning. He hadn’t seen it in over a week. This was one of the reasons I stopped juicing. I recently learned that I could juice and then freeze and still get the benefits, so I am giving it another shot. When I was in Aldi’s I picked up a box to read the ingredients and it was a struggle. I guess I am finally used to wearing my glasses.

I came home and unloaded the car. I asked the Girl if she wanted or needed to go anywhere and she said “no”. So I text the neighbor and asked her if she wanted to go traipsing through the woods with our cameras. When I asked her the sun was shining bright, when we left 20 minutes later it was starting to get cloudy. I underestimated how cold it actually was. I might have been fine if I had worn gloves. The whole Raynaud thing doesn’t happen to me often but it happened to me today. Wool socks and fleece lined leggings were the perfect choice. Wearing only a hoodie at 38 degress wasn’t the smartest choice. I only have wool coats, I don’t have a Northface type coat, but my biggest mistake was not wearing gloves. Lesson learned…my hands can’t take the cold anymore and especially not for an hour and a half.

I was mostly looking for color out in the woods and it became almost like a scavenger hunt. We had a good time and found plenty of colors. Blue berries, red berries, green ferns, green moss,and lots of fungi. There was even a herd of deer that ran close by. Not close enough and too fast to get a picture.

When we were getting into the car the sun came back out….that happened so many times last Summer at the pool. It’s one of those funny…not funny things. The first thing I did when I got home was run warm water over my hands until the couple fingers got their color back.  It took a while to shake off the chill so I didn’t do much else today. It was worth it though….it’s been a long time since I spent quality time outside….Zia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.
